The clip includes: Miranda (Anne Lambert) collecting flowers on the morning of the picnic; a schoolgirl at the window in a shot inspired by photographer David Hamilton; two schoolgirls applying rose petals as lipstick before the picnic; a melancholy Rosamund (Ingrid Mason) playing the piano after the schoolgirls’ disappearance while Sara (Margaret Nelson) watches; and Sara seated in the college grounds.

Excerpts are taken from reels of 35mm silent colour outtakes, trims of scenes and additional unused material acquired from Martin Sharp, who was credited on the film as 'Artistic Advisor to the Director’.
